A US judge has granted a temporary restraining order that blocks President Donald Trump’s second order to restrict travel from six predominately Muslim countries.

Derrick Watson, a US district judge in Hawaii, granted a request by the state itself to block the order nationwide, according to a ruling on Wednesday.

The revised travel ban from the Trump administration comes after a botched effort in January that was struck down by federal courts.
